The rookies grades are in for the Miami Dolphins. Every rookie is graded who produced in 2014 and there's analysis of each player's strengths and weaknesses.
Here is a recap of Miami's first-year grades:
First-round pick OT Ja'Wuan James: A-
Second-round pick WR Jarvis Landry: A
Third-round pick OT Billy Turner: D
Fourth-round pick DB Walt Aikens: C+
Fifth-round pick LB Jordan Tripp: D+
Seventh-round pick DE Terrence Fede: B+
Undrafted LB Chris McCain: B
Undrafted RB Damien Williams: B
Overall, the Dolphins got solid production from their rookie class. First-year general manager Dennis Hickey made several solid picks and also had some nice finds in the late rounds and undrafted players.
The key will be for Miami (8-8) to continue developing its young players in an effort to get over the hump and into the playoffs next season.
